with teem - on team romney hitting po two battle ground state,. 29 of the 279 electoral votes needed to win are up for grabs. the government was in so-called i-4 corridor tampa and orlando that could decide who wins the sunshine state governor romney high lighted the importance of early voting that starts today in florida. >> it helps for you to vote now. the earlier you vote the more help you can give us to get people to the polls. we have to get people who care about america to go to the polls and vote this election counts . we'll make it count for america. >> congressman paul ryan is in ohio and no republican ever won the white house without winning ohio. governor romney will join ryan there. team obama pressing on in new hampshire. a state he won in 2008 and he may need to win again and biden in virginia. we'll have more on the obama campaign in a moment. we'll go to carl cameron. you are tramping with the romny campaign and an event thal go live this hour. for now changes in the schedule for the romney because of the super storm. >> that's right. we are on i-four. and so many republica
those voting early, you can see the president has a big advantage there, 58% to 39%. mitt romney has the advantage. the romney campaign says they're doing much better than john mccain's campaign. >> just getting back to florida real quickly, you mentioned mitt romney's events there, one exactly where you are at the moment. but what is he going to be focusing on specifically in florida? who is he targeting? >> reporter: he's going to be targeting early voters for sure, but also he's going to be targeting those remaining undecided voters. also one of the other missions today is to kind of excite the base, the republicans and conservatives here in florida and get them out to the polls. he's going to be joined in all three stops by senator marco rubio, the freshman senator here, a very popular republican. he's also going to talk about the economy. that's really his wheelhouse. yesterday's gdp report was pretty favorable. the obama campaign saying this is proof that the economy is starting to rebound, but mitt romney in a big speech in iowa on the economy said just the opposite. >> today
romney wins the popular vote, barack obama wins the electoral vote and the presidency, like we had in 2000, and it raises questions going into governing. so i think what you see is the next day, mitch mcconnell and john boehner the republican leaders in the congress, stand up and say we'll speak for the majority of the country and therefore continue to oppose the president's agenda. >> what about you, amie? any words from inside the white house? are they mulling this prospect of the possible electoral vote split and how it might affect governing? >> i don't think they care so much about the national poll. they haven't really even strategists tell me they haven't even really been focused on that. they're focused on the swing states. so i think that when the president does come back, if he does come back, then he will have to say, you know, this is all in the past, let's all try to work together. but i think they're taking the swing state polling very seriously, and not so much on the other. >> yeah. steve, quickly, hurricane sandy. we know it's canceled events in virginia and new ha
, to play defense. from the democrats, romney can't find the votes for the battleground states, so he's throwing wild passes where he can't win. the new polls out today suggest the democrats are right, this is a distraction, not a reality. also, that romney jeep advertisement we told you about yesterday was so dishonest, so misleading that chrysler and gm executives themselves are pushing back. people expect politicians to trim the truth a bit, but it's possible that mitt romney has just crossed a line that not even the most uninformed voters will accept, that jeep is moving to china. and look who's back, joe isuzu, speaking of dishonesty, this time campaigning, kind of, for mitt romney. >> i'm joe isuzu. guys, vote for mitt romney and you'll get a free binder full of women, you have my word on it! >> well, in case you missed that, it's a spoof, sort of, and it's in the "sideshow." joe isuzu is back. finally, let me finish with the best way to fight people who play racial politics -- get out there and vote. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> we've got new national polls o
shrum and ed rogers from the prior segment. >>> later on, romney's secret voting bloc. get this, evangelicals. you won't believe how they could carry ohio and other states for romney. >>> and coming up, six hour gas lines. this is another problem in the aftermath of the hurricane. there's rationing at the pump. raising tempers past the boiling point. how did we end up back in the 1970s? >>> folks, don't forget free market capitalism is the best path to prosperity. don't regulate these utilities so much. let them charge free market prices. it would have been easier to get through this crisis. i'm kudlow. we'll be right back. this is america. we don't let frequent heartburn come between us and what we love. so if you're one of them people who gets heartburn and then treats day after day... block the acid with prilosec otc and don't get heartburn in the first place! [ male announcer ] one pill each morning. 24 hours. zero heartburn. welcome to the world leader in derivatives. welcome to superderivatives. >>> once again, you're looking at live pictures from westchester, ohio, near c
january brewer, mitt romney and their tea party friends are trying to steal your vote. wherever you live stolen votes will effect you and almost half of the latino voters in the country. we can stop them. before going to vote on election day, plan on time to vote. second, plan how to edit there. fourth, plan who you will take with you. [ speaking spanish ] we can't let them steal it. >> eliot: arturo, what do you hope to accomplish with this ad? >> we're targeting four states, florida, nevada colorado, and arizona. why arizona, arizona has become a state where you're seeing record-level voter registration levels in the latino community. you can see arpio is vulnerable and you're beginning to see that in a lot of these states colorado nevada and particular particularly arizona for years to come, you see the anti-latino, anti- anti-immigration stance is having an effect. this ad is geared to educate latinos on anti-democratic efforts by republicans g.o.p. tea party afillated groups for ms. informing and basically lying about the election years. in mayor copa county they put out in spanish
towards him. 205 electoral votes followed or leaning towards governor romney. 270 electoral votes wins it. so they are campaigning in the same places. >> there are eight battleground states out there that either of these candidates could win. it will come down to who gets their voters to the polls. all about turnout as this race is in absolute dead heat. >> reporter: neither said much new on friday, reacting to the new unemployment report, up .1% with 171,000 new jobs created in october. >> unemployment is higher than when he took office. >> the company has hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> reporter: but sometimes this evening, they sounded alike. >> god bless you, god bless the united states of america. >> god bless you. god bless america! >> god bless america adds to something unexpected like hanging chads. this is over in four days. anita? >> don't jinx us, gary. tuesday's weather could play a role in voter turnout. here is topper with a look at what you can expect from the all-important swing state. >> reporter: yes, here are most of the swing
need 40% of the latino vote, but right now, we could very well see mitt romney win with a lot less than that and we could see barack obama win with a lot less of the white vote than we have seen in the past. >> right. it certainly has shifted. maria, very quickly, if you were running the obama campaign where would you go, what would you be doing? a lot of people have said he needs to start belting it out again and getting that sore throat that he had at the end of 2008. >> i think he'll probably end up with that sore throat on tuesday night, but i also think exactly what they're doing -- look, bill clinton wherever they can get him. and going to all of the swing states wherever they can get him. i think more importantly, to actually show real people. in ohio, to have all of the auto workers whose jobs have been saved by the president's rescue of the auto industry, in sharp contrast with what mitt romney wanted to do, which was to let the industry go bankrupt and also in sharp contrast with the absolutely flat-out deceiving ads that mitt romney is running in ohio right now, where he even
some votes. that's not what being president's all about. >> the president was responding to this romney ad that implies the auto bailout plan failed and chrysler will move jobs to china, a claim that chrysler has denied. romney spoke last hour in new hampshire, sharpening his attack on obama, and he's all but declared victory. he even called the event a victory rally. >> when i'm president, it's going to be very clear that we finally have an administration and a president and a government in the united states that actually likes job creators, that wants to help job creators. >> romney called yesterday's jobs report a sad reminder that unemployment is essentially unchanged at 7.9%. while the obama campaign touted the 171,000 jobs added with improved numbers in september and august. we have our correspondents spread throughout the battleground states to bring you the latest on the election and the final push for both candidates. dan lothian is in ohio where the president will speak next hour. dan, good morning. how is president obama handling the post-sandy power outages and flooding on t
and says he'll get 305 electoral votes. flip side mitt romney will be winning with 315 electoral votes. does anyone know what's going to happen? >> no, of course not. this is why i love politics. and this is why i love the pollsters. they try to apply science and data that predict. we're talk about human beings. and human behavior is unpredictable. we can have a sense of what we think is going to happen. the numbers i've been looking at are some of the early vote numbers. for example if you look at some of of these battle ground states and the number of people who have already voted early, the percentages that mitt romney will have to get of the remaining vote, the math is pretty tough. >> in some of those battle ground states they're saying that election day seems to have the headwind behind mitt romney. >> it could. the point is we don't know. and as tony knows, early voters to some degree that's a different universe. we've talked about this before. that's a different universe of voters than necessarily the people that vote on election day so we don't know. >> go ahead, tony. >> you
would win 303 electoral votes and romney would win 235. 270 are needed to win the white house. the times blog gives the president an 81% chance of winning the election. romney has a 19% chance. and as of tonight, 25 million people have already voted but long lines are creating a serious situation in some parts of florida. yes, florida all over again. some people are waiting three hours or more to vote and we will be asking why governor rick scott in florida is refusing to extend hours as his predecessors have done. but we start with tonight's lead. the closer. just four days to go and president obama is sprinting to the finish line with a passionate pitch to ohio voters and he's doing so by dismantling governor romney's rationale in this race one line of the obama argument, i am the guy you know. >> after four years as president, you know me. you may not agree with every decision i've made, you may be frustrated sometimes at the pace of change, but you know that i say what i mean and i mean what i say. you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i tell the truth. and you kn
to make a difference for president obama. it won't if romney has more votes and wins. it's important to remind the supporters what's at stake and to get them to bank those votes in advance. >> jeff, we are expecting sandy to throw quite the wrench into some campaigning. governor romney shifting his stops tomorrow from virginia to ohio. power outages after the storm could really shift priorities for a lot of swing state voters. how big could the political impact of sandy be? s. >> well, the first thing to think about, since you know i like to do the counterfactual history. what if sandy hit on tuesday november 6th? that would be something that has never happened before, as far as i can tell in american politics. the broader point, if i may, is that the obama campaign, its one advantage even in the midst of the last couple of weeks since the first debate of declining leads is that it's had four years, five, if you count the 2008 campaign, to build a turnout machine. the sophistication of how you locate your voters and how you persuade them to vote has changed by a factor of a million,

. the president and governor romney really, really want your votes in florida. they're among the most sought after in the nation, unless you forget the obama campaign put out a potent reminder. >> 537. the number of votes that changed the course of american history. >> florida is too close to call. >> the difference between what was and what could have been. so, this year, if you're thinking that your vote doesn't count, that it won't matter, well, back then there were probably at least 537 people who felt the same way. >> oh, yes, the florida recount. that was 12 years ago. when you see the hanging chad and the guy checking the ballots, it all comes back. so are florida's 29 electoral votes. here to talk with me about florida this morning, bernie thompson, host of "the burnerni thompson show" out of florida. who is going to win florida? >> if it were held today, mitt romney would win florida. >> president obama is going to lose it and he won in '08. why do you think he is going to lose it? >> he won the vote from women and independents pretty handily in 2008 and he is neck and neck with women and
voting, and that he lost the election day voting to make romney. so this is not a good sign commend i have been watching this trend for a week. the margins are getting bigger. on tuesday it was 150 some odd thousand. now it is larger than what obama won the state by a in 2008. this is a bad sign for president obama, and we see it reflected in the polls as well. if you take a look, allup says 15 percent of the people had voted early. they were breaking for romney by 52-46. this week to reports 19 percent of those surveyed said they had voted. a break for romney by 50-43. obama won the early vote last time around, according to puke, by 19 points or was winning at this point by 19 points and now he's losing it by seven. that is more than enough to flip the election. lou: two things, if we can go back to your board, immediately apparent command one is that there is a 5-4 margin if i read correctly, democrats over republicans in the early vote in 2008 that ratio was over two times -- two times. >> almost two to one. and we are talking here about less than a 5-4 margin. we are talking abou
romney barnstorming the state of ohio today, a swing state, with 18 electoral votes that could be the key to victory tesday. four days before we choose who ll lead the nation for the next four years, president obama making an outrageous claims about his record in the face of a rise in the unemployment rate today, which had just under 8%, is higher than when the president took office. >> our idea were tried and testedand they worked. their ideas were also tried, and they did no work done so well. lou: 23 milli americans to remain out of work might disagree. the national debt has risen by more than $5 trillion. the nation'seconomy, it is all but stagnant. this has governor romney running l as the candidate of change. >> accomplishing change is not just something i talked about. it is sething actually done, and we need to hve someone in the white house who cannot just talk about it, but do it. lo the most recent poll of ohio mirrors those tight national polls. rasmussen reports showing governor romney tied with president obama at 49%. nationally the dead heat can be seenacross a white canvas
headquarters. i'm jane jane. >> governor mitt romney making a last minute push for votes in the building ground state. polls are showing for the race for the white house is tighter than ever. carl cameron is live in florida heading to kissimmee where he is expected at another rally. what is the latest. >> reporter: hi, gregg. one of romney en route to kissimmee for the second event of the day. all the events, mitt romney has not postponed because of hurricane sandy as it bears down on the east coast. there were three plans, they will be moved to later dates and he will join us with paul ryan in ohio tomorrow in order to steer clear of the storm. earlier today he was in the panhandle, up there talking to conservative republicans and n pens colt la, a g.o.p. stronghold. a combination of really trying to organize and rally the base. get them out to vote as well as courting moderate swing voters. to that end, more romney made a deliberate and outward overture seeking bipartisan. watch. >> we've got to do something that doesn't happen very often in washington, that is paul ryan and you are going to
decided last week that i said it's probably going to be a six point vote or more in favor of romney. probably above 300 elector yil votes. this number tonight would fit that kind of a sweep because i think republicans will vote more on election day that. begins to tell me could be 54, 46 maybe by the time you get to election day. >> we did printout what you said last week in case i needed it. i'll see after election day how close you are. in terms of the storm does that do anything, i think steve hays refered to something like statture gap that he was losing his statture gap. now, this will make him appear more presidential and the opportunity. i don't mean to demean the president or the storm or light of the loss but just the hard reality is that election day is tuesday. >> i think the storm is so big, damage so wide spread and intense, that you know, president is going to, he's hopefully doing his job, what he should be doing. on the other hand the storm is going to dampen some of his turn out of his supporter who's are less enthusiastic. so i think it's kind of a wash. if somethi
us a look at early voting. polls showing governor romney leading president obama 52% to 45% among voter who's already cast their ballots. newt gingrich joins us, good evening, sir. your thoughts on the gallup poll of early voters? >> if it's accurate it's devastating for obama. obama played a tremendous amount of effort into building a ground game. they're confident they can turn the vote out early. they talked about it with a sense of achievement. if this is correct, it's a remarkable result. republicans have been saying during all of the snap shots well, don't worry about early voting because republican voters tend to be older, they love to vote on election day. all of a sudden these numbers i'm surprised and i frankly thought i would not have been surprised to see it reversed and see it obama, 52, romney, 45. so this is a shocking number. but it fits something that you may have seen late last week. gallup took all of this september questions, 19,000 people pretty big universe. looking at all of them together as one group. and said the surprise is that this electorate looks more
to vote for mitt romney. and also the catholic church when i go to saint sin vent in kenwood in since is national the minister is telling us vote for religious freedom. vote for the biblical definition of marriage. vote for life. there is half a million catholics energized in south, ohio, to pull the lever for mitt romney. mitt romney will win, ohio, and is going to win ohio easily. >> sean: wisconsin? >> wisconsin will go for romney because what walker did and what ryan did made it possible for mitt romney to win wisconsin. let's face it, tonight in westchester, 30,000 people came to butler county, ohio, the most important county and the most important state in the the union and last -- and the last cycle four years ago, we couldn't get 300 people to watch john mccain. 30,000 stood in a grass field to hear the words tonight of mitt romney and paul ryan and it was a turned on moment for this state. >> sean: billy cunningham you have never been block cincinnati. i'm taking it to the bank. you are a great american. god bless you. >> so are you. god bless america. >> sean: karl rove shar
. are you voting for romney? >> maybe you should give me water to drink. >> greg: bill put something in there. you won't remember anything. is it possible that obama and romney could both win and split running the country on alternating days? >> it's happened in a number of times. in the united states in the 40s. fdr governed with grandfather's friend. nobody knows that. rick, an unknown rascal. no. it's like a beatles record not a herman hermit's record. obama is going to win. i think piling nate silver and all these people. it seems like he is right. >> greg: do you think it's close or not even close? >> i think it's close but not as close as lot of pundits are letting on. dick morris says it's going to be landslide for homicidal. i don't know what planet dick morris is living on. i just choose the opposite. i know he is friend of yours. >> greg: we go wai back, we lived in a camper for six years, it didn't work out. bernie, do you agree? >> now that governor christie has stuck his share in mitt romney it's going to be an obama landslide. i just wonder this nate silver came out of
for romney but i am also voting for, and math hooverville -- i am also voting for connie mack over bill nelson. they have caused gridlock. and i have to laugh with the democrat john about gridlock. they are the ones that caused it. they are the ones that say -- we need to come across the aisle and work with them. they have never been willing to work with us. connie mack has conservative of values. he is a conservative. he will help governor romney when he gets into the white house. to balance our budget, to cut taxes, to also reduce the deficit. my vote is mack. host: talk about commercials and ads on this race you have seen. especially the past couple of days and what you have been experiencing. caller: there are negative ads on both sides. never know what to believe. you see all kinds of negative things. the democrats, all kinds of negative things, the republicans. but you cannot base your vote on that. you have got to get their policies, principles, platforms, what they stand for, if they are conservative or liberal, and then, vote on that basis. host: had a thing florida will go ove
's a big fat state, 20 electoral votes. i don't think there's much of a chance for romney to take that state out of obama's column and he needs to look elsewhere. i think it's been surprising that romney hasn't been able to expand the map very much to a place like -- to a place like pennsylvania, to a place like michigan. i think at this point he's really scrambling to figure out how he can get 270. >> tomorrow paul ryan will be in ohio, colorado and minnesota. i'm curious about minnesota, that last state. seems to be firmly in the obama column. today the obama campaign announcing bill clinton will also be going to minnesota tomorrow. is there a battle brewing for minnesota now? >> well, there ought not be. minnesota has voted democratic since 1972 because it voted for walter monday dale one of the few states that voted for walter monday dale. it's pretty reliably democratic although republicans have been competitive in state elections. is there a battle brewing? i don't think so. again what the romney campaign is doing is looking for ohio insurance. they have not been running ahe
a romney administration would mean for the middle class and women and every other voting group. these are desperate times for team obama. he is trailing in the polls and is being forced to spend resources in states that he won easily in 2008. as a result, the lying will no doubt continue into tuesday. what makes matters worse this just as temperatures begin to reach the freezing point in new york, new jersey, long island and connecticut over the weekend and famed families without food and power, electricity and heat our compassionate leader will be campaigning alongside who else, bruce string seen, former are drug dealer jay-zed former rapper who once shot his brother and uses the. in word. the rhetoric flowing from supporters even more disgraceful. ohio governor ted strickland attacked governor romney for sending his campaign bus to deliver disaster relief supplies this week. watch. >> and then there is mitt romney who tries to fake compassion by asking people to bring food to a rally and when they don't do it they take $5,000 and go out to wal-mart and by food to pass out to
. in the battle of early voting and late momentum. i rather be romney. it gives hum a shot at state that is obama. wisconsin, iowa and new hampshire and maybe even nevada can get back in there because the republican candidate is doing well. that's the way you play with the map. if you have to cede ohio. you are cashing in and realization that for a president who got 56 percent of the female vote as the nonincumben in a two gender race is significant. >> doug, kelly ann mentioned new hampshire and ohio and iowa and wisconsin. and so, so, obama's barely ahead in some of those state not at 50 percent. that is dangerous for the territory. >> it is and that's why you will see governor that obama is going to raise questions about romney next week because it is very hard if not impossible for him to get 50 percent. he has to discourage the undecided from voting for romney. that is a win for the president if they stay home. he will need tv effort and plus trying to persuade the undecided not to support romney. >> and governor, may i just add the states are significant for another reason. we look through
with disasters has raised doubts. >> reporter: senator boxer pushed for votes, criticizing governor romney. we asked the senator why a delay in relief supplies from fema to staten island. >> all i can say is they are getting the help they need. >> reporter: napolitano says search and rescue operations took priority, and now dozens of fema teens are helping those on staten island and beyond. >> almost $15 million is already on the street. this is assistance directly to individuals. >> reporter: 1.5 million customers are still without power in new jersey, 1.3 million in new york. reporting live, ktvu channel 2 news. >>> coverage of the deadly storm continues, coming up at 5:45, east coast is not out of the woods. the new threat brewing that could send a strong winter storm directly at areas already battered by sandy. >> the one place where news of sandy's arrival it -- >> chevron says it's richmond refinery cock fully back online -- could be fully back online. a fire last august badly damaged the processing unit that is said to be at the heart of operations. during a conference california with a
electoral votes. the real question, i go back to pennsylvania, is romney engaging in a ultimate head fake or faint by going into pennsylvania on sunday? is it an app? a strategic design to get obama to go in to pennsylvania, or do they actually feel that those 20 electoral votes can be gained or is it an act of desperation? >> i want to bring it back home here to the district. the d.c. city council, the at- large incumbent michael brown is up for re-election. there have been questions regarding the councilman about campaign financing. is michael brown in any kind of real trouble heading into tuesday with all of these headlines that have been surrounding him? >> he's incumbent and has a great political name. his late father was chairman of the democrat national committee, secretary of commerce, and a very prominent african-american in this country. michael brown is in trouble. that scene is in jep -- seat is in jeopardy, david grasso is running against him, and that is a question will african- american voters in great numbers stay with michael brown or will they give a look at grasso? one
the state if democrats win the early voting battle by a significant margin? >> governor romney really needs to win in the state of florida. the early voting, you characterized that right. it's been a democratic strength. as a matter of fact, in 2008, the obama team had a 10% advantage on early vote nationwide. what we are seeing in these battleground states and across the country in this cycle is that that advantage is still there but much smaller, less than 4% advantage to the democrats so far in early voting. what the republicans are trying to do in key states like florida, especially ohio, is just do everything they can to improve upon their performance four years ago and mccain's performance four years ago. to have a really vigorous get out the vote effort on election day. >> i want to continue this conversation about early voting. let's move to ohio now. "time" magazine found this week that among voters in ohio who have not yet cast ballots, the race is tied 45%-45%. among those who already voted, the president has a 30-point edge. in 2008 about 1/3 of ohio voters cast their ballots ea
the president with romney carrying 279 electoral votes, probably more. is karl rove trying to give comfort to his financial backers, here's a group or do you really think he believes it? >> i think karl rove incredibly shrewd. he knows that voters want to go with winners and you want to protect the idea that your guy is going to be the winner so that those soft supporters will back him and pull that lever and perhaps help you out to that degree. so i don't know if he believes it, but i certainly think he wants everybody else to believe it and he knows that this is a really shrewd strategy on his part. >> reverend, i interviewed karl rove in the white house three days before the 2006 midterm where he promised that republicans would hold on to the house. they lost the house, the senate. he said at that time to me, you've got your mess but i've got my mess. this is karl rove's mess and it's the same mess that he tried to play before the 2000 election when he said -- promised reporters, swore to us that he was going to win california, taking 320 votes in the electoral college. >> the same karl

in this country. the president said people should be voting because it is the best revenge. mitt romney has been telling crowds all day long that people should be voting out of what they think is best for the country in their heart. so that is the message that they've been delivering all day long. i can also tell you that the front of the campaign plane we have seen a higher number of top campaign advisers flying with the gop nominee including michael levitt who has been leading the readiness project, as they skaul it. i talked to governor levitt for just a few brief moments in iowa and he said what they've been doing is building a ship, he called it, that they hope will set sail and we'll find out whether that will happen on tuesday. >> maybe, maybe not. i want to listen in on mitt romney. he's got an enthusiastic crowd there in colorado springs. let's listen. >> we've almost forgotten what a real recovery looks like. what americans could achieve when we limit government instead of limiting the dreams of our fellow americans. and the people of america, they're going to be able to choose the fut
voted one in six voters who said they voted they gave mitt romney a six-point margin, less than one out of five voters say they are going to vote before election day, they split evenly between president obama and governor romney which tends to indicate that at least the enthusiastic el her voters are republican and the democrats have a prove with a lack of enthusiasm among their people and finally on election day the people would plan, just less than two-thirds 63 percent plan to vote on election day, they split for governor romney by the same number six points 51 to 45 percent so at least according to gallup this looks good. it is also borne out by if you look at the battleground state roughly 11 million, rather, 11 percent advantage for democrats either voting early or casting absentee ballot in 2008 but is far through roughly the 27th, it has been a decline of seven points if president obama declines seven point he is in trouble one with 53, dropping seven gives him 47. >>neil: how do you think the storm affects this in anyway? karl: where it is difficult to cope. romney will be hurt
